Columbus Zoo Welcomes Baby Girl Bonobo


UPDATED: Wednesday July 18, 2012 12:04 PM

A Bonobo named Unga gave birth to her third baby Tuesday morning at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.

Zoo officials said that the female baby bonobo is the 13th bonobo born at the Columbus Zoo since the Zoo received its first bonobo in 1990.

The baby girl will join her brothers, named Gander and Jerry, who still live at the zoo.

Bonobos and humans share more than 98 percent of the same DNA, making them more closely related to humans than to gorillas, according to zoo officials.
